Native 4K SXRD TM panel
The advanced SXRD TM (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) panel technology featured in Sony's home theater projectors delivers native 4K-resolution (4096 x 2160) images with 8.8 million pixels for an incredibly lifelike picture. SXRD projection offers rich, inky blacks as well as clear cinematic motion and image smoothness, and can reproduce vibrant colors with more tones and textures than a standard projector system.
X1 TM for projector
X1 TM for projector takes our acclaimed BRAVIA TV video processing and optimizes it for projection. This processor combines innovative technologies for high-precision frame analysis, enabling features like the Dynamic HDR Enhancer and Super Resolution.
1,800 lumens for brightness
Savor the action with the brightness you need to get high contrast across the screen. A 280 W ultra-high pressure lamp generates the brightness required for vibrant images on screens up to 300" (762 cm) diagonally. You can enjoy up to 6,000 hours of viewing time (in low mode) from a long-lasting mercury lamp.
4K aspherical lens for more clarity
The primary projection lens features a large-diameter aspherical element for corner-to-corner sharpness.
350,000:1 dynamic contrast for stunning realism
A dynamic contrast of 350,000:1 makes every scene spring to life with fine detail and realism. The powerful video processor is combined with lens iris control to achieve both deep, inky blacks and vibrant color.
Dynamic HDR Enhancer
The Dynamic HDR Enhancer powered by X1 TM for projector delivers the best contrast by processing HDR content scene by scene. It further enhances the contrast in combination with iris light-output control, which makes bright scenes brighter and dark scenes darker to deliver bright 4K HDR images.
4K Motionflow TM
The powerful video processor in the VPL-VW715ES offers Motionflow TM for smooth and clear motion, even when viewing 4K content. Motionflow TM is best for fast-moving sports content, as it adds frames to reduce blur while maintaining brightness. Cinema purists can choose True Theater mode to retain the original 24fps.
Digital Focus Optimizer
Optimum focus is achieved not only optically, but also digitally, with the Digital Focus Optimizer. By analyzing every pixel of the images with our own algorithm and detecting possible optical degradation in advance, the Digital Focus Optimizer performs optimum image quality correction so that the focus is better than ever, even in the corners.
Super-resolution Reality Creation for 4K content
Sony's exclusive Reality Creation technology analyzes images right down to the pixel level. It then employs pattern-matching algorithms developed over years of movie production to enhance details without increasing digital picture noise. It also upscales existing Full HD Blu-ray Disc TM and DVD movies to near-4K quality.
Motorized zoom lens and wide lens shift
Installing this projector in your room is easy with a 2.06x motorized zoom and a wide lens shift range. Adjust the position of the projector by up to 85% vertically and 31% horizontally using lossless optical adjustments, to get just the right angle for your movies.
HDR compatibility: every image comes to life
Get the most from today's UHD Blu-ray discs and streaming services with High Dynamic Range. HDR video offers an expanded brightness range that delivers more realistic high-contrast images and brilliant color. Compatible with both HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) formats, Sony's home cinema projectors reproduce color and contrast that's faithful to the creators' intent.
